What does a radiologist do?

Interventional radiologists (IR) help save patients' lives in different ways, from stopping bleeds in trauma patients to treating cancer and other diseases. The IR commonly uses imaging guidance to look deep inside the body, using a needle-sized hole and a band-aid to target pain generators and treat them accordingly.

What question should you ask a radiologist?

When consulting with a radiologist, you should ask about the tools used for the radiology process that will be used for your treatment procedure. Always remember to ask about the procedure that will be followed for the specific scanning, including the scanning timing, food consumption before the scanning, and the report timeline.

What are the most common types of conditions that radiologists treat?

Interventional radiology can help treat internal problems in the body. It is a minimally invasive therapy that uses imaging to diagnose issues like cancer, fibroids, tumours, nerve pain, and others. According to the imaging results, IR can kill cancer cells and tumours. Patients with back pain, spine fractures, artery diseases, and other similar issues can also be treated by interventional radiologists.

When should I consider seeing a radiologist?

Your doctor may ask you to visit the interventional radiologist under different circumstances, including:

  • Blood vessel blockage: This includes narrowed arteries, blood clots, and varicose veins.
  • Kidney disease: Such as accessing veins during dialysis, diagnosing kidney failure, and removing kidney stones.
  • Gallstones: IR can treat gallstones
  • Cancers: IR can treat cancers, including breast cancer

How does a radiologist decide on a treatment plan?

Interventional radiologists (IR) use medical imaging to guide them through minimally invasive procedures to diagnose and treat a range of conditions. They treat the internal problem by inserting small tools, including needles, to target the pain point. The IR properly scans the imaging report before proceeding with the treatment.

Will a radiologist help manage side effects during treatment?

Interventional radiologists help manage side effects like blood clots and fluid accumulation in the body. Doctors use chemotherapy with interventional radiology to eliminate or reduce tumours. Moreover, at Aster Prime, our interventional radiologist in Hyderabad will help reduce pain and improve mobility after the treatment.

What documents should I carry on my first visit to a radiologist?

When you visit an interventional radiologist for the first time, you don't have to carry any specific documents. However, it is helpful to carry a reference from your primary doctor along with some previous medical reports connected to your health issue.

How should I prepare for my first visit to a radiologist?

You do not need to do anything special to visit the interventional radiologist. However, you should make sure you are not wearing any jewellery, wear light clothes, and carry past medical reports.
